“Beating the Stigma of Mental Illness”
The stigma of mental illness significantly worsens the course of serious disorders. This presentation will review different types of stigma – public stigma, self-stigma, label avoidance – and specific harmful results. We will then review effective ways to challenge them which, by the way, largely do NOT reside in education, but more in contact with people in recovery.
1. Define the three types of stigma related to substance use disorder (SUD).
2. Describe the three sets of harmful effects wrought by stigma.
3. Put together a program that will diminish the harmful effects of SUD stigma.
- Formal peer-support services that address priorities of people with psychiatric disabilities: A systematic review
- The impact of contact and fame on changing the public stigma of mental illness
- The impact of mental illness stigma on seeking and participating in mental health care
About the Speaker:
Patrick Corrigan is Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the Illinois Institute of Tech-nology. Prior to that, Corrigan was Professor of Psychiatry and Executive Director of the University of Chicago Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation. Corrigan has worked most of his 30-year career in providing and evaluating services for people with psychiatric disabil-ities with special focus on the impact of health equity. Realizing that the benefits of psy-chiatric services are limited by stigma, he has spent the past two decades broadening his research to the prejudice and discrimination of mental illness. His work has been support-ed by NIH and PCORI for most of that time to, among other things, develop and lead the National Consortium on Stigma and Empowerment (www.NCSE1.org). This led to devel-opment of the Honest, Open, Proud program to erase the stigma of mental illness (www. honestopenproudprogram.org). Corrigan also extended his research to mental health AND social determinants (e.g., ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, and age) and corresponding social disadvantage related to poverty, criminal justice involve-ment, and immigration concerns resulting in the Chicago Health Disparities Center (www. chicagoheatlhdispariteis.org) . Corrigan has authored more than 450 journal articles and 20 books. He is also editor of Stigma and Health, an APA journal.
